River of Tears

Image result for river of tears

Listen to this song … A beautiful song by a wonderful singer !! A must to listen to this song !! It truly touched me and i hope it does the same for you !!

“He started to estrange her… 
And they became strangers
Who knew each other’s heart,
So broken as they drifted apart.

She went down to the river,
She set down on the bank.
She tried to think but couldn’t,
So she jumped in and sank”

 Tears are words the mouth can’t say nor can the heart bear.

Is that why I cry so much ? Can’t I express what I feel through spoken words ? Is my pain so strong that it is unable for me to bear it myself ? Do I want someone to share these tears with ? Do I want to show them that I am too weak to stand alone ? Do I want them to see that they were successful in breaking me and pushing me down ? Do I want to give them that satisfaction ?


No I don’t .

Sometimes they just slip …slowly rolling down my cheeks …wetting my face. Its involuntary …. I don’t feel sad …I don’t feel like crying …yet they just break my barrier . Is that what happens when everything you once believed in turned out to be a lie ? All the trusts broken.  When you are fed with nothing but lies . When you are forced to be someone you don’t want to be. When you are forced to make your heart feel something that never existed . When your are forced to forget something that can never be forgotten …. Tears had poured from my eyes without any change in my  facial expression. It’s pure pain and pure surrender when your soul cries without any fight from your body …

I don’t want to cry but a girl who has no tears, suffers so much more.

Broken promises…. Broken vows are like broken mirrors. They leave those who held to them bleeding and staring at fractured images of themselves

I cant let go of these …if I did maybe it would make me happy . But if I did …then I lose the battle don’t I ? They win ….they win in controlling me ….in breaking me …in making me who they want me to be….in messing with me. But I don’t want to let that happen ? I don’t want to let go of these memories however painful ….because I loved them ….painful …but still once they were all I had…

It’s so curious: one can resist tears and ‘behave’ very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer… and everything collapses

I am in peace now …. I cry and I cleanse myself in this river of tears …. Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of a pure heart. I wept, and it felt as if the tears were cleansingme, as if mybody needed to empty itself

Smiles and tears are so alike with me, they are neither of them confined to any particular feelings: I often cry when I am happy, and smile when I am sad. That is who I am . That is who I defined myself to be….

Do I drown in this river of tears …. You don’t drown because you can’t breathe. You drown because you try to breathe what is not breathable. I have held those memories that bring me pain close to my heart because they keep me strong …because they remind me of the horrors …of the shattering pain….of the lies…this is what keeps me floating and never drowning …bcause now I know …I will never drown anymore

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer

Sometimes I’m drowning myself in my own words.

But its beautiful …

Its happiness…

      Btw, forgot to mention the thoughts on your post :

      I am really glad to know that you found happiness in the midst of all this. River of tears has a nice ring to it, and I loved it how you expressed them to be cleansing.
      In all retrospect, if you want to talk to anyone, I would be happy to hear. Anytime. 🙂

      Endless mountains wrapped in lush greenery
      Under the dome of countless stars
      A million dreams drifted in the river
      Through the charades of euphoria

      Amidst the chaos of life
      Flowed the stream
      Brimming with hope and dreams
      As dry as a desert.

        Psst, you think a lot. And I am not the one to judge anyone. I accept however it goes. So, friend it is then. See, that was easy, how I made a friend of an acquaintance.

        First of all, I don’t mind at all. So, ask me anything, I mean anything.
        My inspiration comes from people around me, their thoughts and how they actually should be. But I think it’s from my failures, the things that keep bothering me.
        And then again, I try to hide myself, between the lines, do you know what I mean? I try to be discreet by writing abstract, masking the truth.
        Does anything makes sense?


      5. i know someone who does the same thing you do …. that person hides their scars beneath all the stories they write …so i know and it makes sense …yeah i do think a lot :p my great sin i guess !!! well i dont know what to ask so why don;t you tell me about yourself .

        Oh, I see. Glad to know that you understand.

        We all are in this thinking business. Everyone’s sin, if I could say.

        Umm, well. I will tell you that might be a little shocking. I have three blogs. This is one thing I keep bragging about, but the thing is I haven’t updated much in any of them.
        And I work and drink coffee and drink more coffee. Yesterday I spent 7 hours at the coffee shop. Hopefully, will do today as well. Which means I am a lonely person, it goes without saying, right?

        Anyhow, tell me about yourself.

        Well we are all lonely in a way . I haven’t found anyone who fully understands how i feel ….dont know why ? I feel im not that compley that people cant understand me.
        My cardinal sin is chocolates !!! Every day every minue and im devouring a one right now !!
        One thing about me – I don’t trust anyone ( except maybe one) which means im still deciding whether i can trust you and im honest to the fault so i dont smother my words in lies .

        I have two sides, any more would be multiple personality disorder. The third one is a photography blog, so.

        Coffee gives you the high you need to keep working. It is a drug, yes.
        You should have it. It’s really good.

        Yes, we indeed are lonely in a way. But most of us aren’t, they find the company. Don’t worry, you will find your shoulder to lean on. I understand that, so may be you have to open up for people to relate to you.

        High Five. I always have chocolates with me. Wait, you’re having now and didn’t think of sharing it with me? Ouch, that really hurt.

        I completely understand. Of course, I am a perfect stranger and you don’t know me that well to trust. I completely get it. But then again, I am not the one to judge and as I have said I am good listener. Well, looking forward for harsh truths. Bring them on.

      9. Sharing a chocolate with you ??? What are you crazy ?? That won’t happen EVER .
        Two sides … do i get to meet both of them ?? I have a feeling that this person …the one talking to me right now isnt the real you …like your Enigma but not the real you ( okay that doesnt make sense ) …If im right ..say yes .
        Your talking to me right now so yeah i know you dont judge 🙂
        Well i think i can up with a question .
        Its more like an abstract question ? Nothing personal …What’s your take on ” finding a shoulder to lean on ‘
        i had one only to find out it was a lie …. now i dont really need one ..i find comfort wit only me and hey more company can make you lose your mind !!


      10. Ξnigma says:

        That’s quite mean of you. It’s always good to share chocolates, especially with me. It will bring you happiness and good luck and everything good. So, it still isn’t late, you know.

        Actually, you are wrong. This is my comfort place, a place where I can be myself without the people judging me for what I say. The other blog has people I know and I seem to be comfortable sharing stuff there, because they ask and judge and all that drama. Here, that’s not the case. This is where I let my guard down.

        Well well, is that your first emoji? And I am glad that you know that I won’t judge.

        That is a good question.
        Let me tell something about me. I have stayed away from home for the past 9 years. I preferred to stay on my own, because people don’t get me and those who do, already have their special group.
        Being on my own has it’s advantages, I completely agree. But overtime, it just kind of gets boring. And I have accepted that, but I see around and I see happy faces, always in groups or in pairs. And I feel that may be there is a need for a shoulder to lean on. How much can that journal of mine take, how many pages have to suffer my wrath? But then again, I know I won’t ever find that shoulder to lean but I keep thinking what if!

        You see I never had one. So, I can’t really comment much. But since you have, take is as a stepping stone to learn from it. Yes, our own company is comforting, but for how long do you think? And the more the company, the more you lose yourself, if it’s the right company. Otherwise, as you said, you lose your mind.

      11. i told you i ain’t always sweet ??? and seriously would you ever share a chocolate with anyone ?? If the answer is yes then you are not a true chocolate lover !!
        Interesting …. yeah i get …this blog is where you can tell your stories without anyone ever judging you …but then again who cares if people judge ..you know who you are and what you feel ..let the whole world screw itself …like i said im always honest …when i was reading your posts they all seemed bare with emotion but it still felt as if there was one topi you hadnt touched and u didnt want to ….
        Yeah people dont get me either !! But isnt be alone better than being with a company which is fake as hell …i mean all they ever talk about is superficial things and stupid stuff …they might seem to be happy but they are all hiding their demons….well personally i think i quite like being alone and writing …and watching shows !!


      12. Ξnigma says:

        Yes, you have. All that chocolate and not an ounce of sweetness in you. What good is the chocolate? That’s why I suggest you give them to me. Thanks and you’re welcome. 😀

        What chocolate are you talking about? I don’t keep it that long for someone to see.

        This place is where I can tell stories, without caring about what other’s might be thinking. People will judge, it’s in their genes to. But it won’t affect me, as it shouldn’t.

        You got that right. I try to write as much as I can, but I keep thinking what people will think if I write this. So, I go into metaphors and hiding behind lines. And I want you to be honest.

        Completely agree. It is better to be alone than to be in a fake company. And what I meant by that shoulder is that someone who understands you, in the inside and cares for you, then you can lean on them with anything.

        Personally, I do that all the time. Have been doing it for the past 8+ years.

        Do you have a scar …not a physical one of course …something from your past …something you cant let go …if you do i want to know about it ..you can tell it to me in the most abstract way possible !!
        and a more simpler one – do you like the rain or the cold or the heat ?


      33. Ξnigma says:

        In a matter of speaking, I do.
        It’s not a bad memory or an experience or something that happened, but my own perception of things. I feel like I lost my way long back. And I refuse to get back on it, even though I want to, I am not giving it much effort. Does it make sense?

        What about you?

        I like the rain. Cold makes my hand go cold and they get frozen. Heat is just not my thing. Rain, mostly because I enjoy the cold water in my face. I usually don’t take my umbrella out even if I have one and it starts raining. People would be running to get a shade. Not me. I just walk slowly though the puddles and the steam of water.

        Imagine this – As the palm flies in the space between the face the hand, the head goes down and misses the slap, instead slaps the air.
        Ninja skills at play, sweet person. 🤣

        You have a good imagination, I’ll tell you that, Sweet person. I should probably make it sweety or something. 😂

        I will take your word for it. But I am a hard shell to crack. So, all the best. 😁
